29.97 fpp or 23.98 fpp project setting?

Hello all,
I have a mixed footage. Most of it was shot at 23.98fpp, some at 29.97fpp. This is a promo for a construction company. When I creat a new project what setting should I use?
Thank you very much in advance.

Depends on how you plan to show it. Youtube and Vimeo use 30 fps. In film school the instructors love 24 fps because it emulates film. Television is still all 30 fps. I will let the experts weigh in on whether FCPX works differently during the edit if you choose one or the other.

Thank you! But I can change the setting any time, right?

I think it doesn't matter until you decide how to output it and then you will have to specify 24 or 30 when you send it through compressor.

Actually you must choose a frame rate when you start a new timeline- it cannot be changed once you start editing. As most of your footage is already 24p I would highly recommend using that as your timebase.

Yes, it automatically set 24, when I dropped my first clip on the timeline. I am just not sure how it will affect outcome, because most likely it will be used on the web.

Web video can be pretty much any frame rate. 24/25/29.97/30/50/60 are the most common and all look fine and play on YouTube/Vimeo etc.

If I know the video is for web use I usually choose 23.98. Doing that ups the encoded quality at a given frame rate as the encoder can apply the data rate to 24 rather than 30 frames every second. If for television, then 30 is the way to go.
